For anything bulky I tend to use interlink direct next day delivery and they text the recipient an hour delivery slot which is a nice touch.

They are reasonable and you can get a fiver off with your first shipment...I pay about £11 for a frame to be shipped.

Hope that helps Jason :D

I've used the post office to ship large items before including bikes, mountain buggey and and a dyson 'hoover'.

Always thought they were reasonable priced and easy to us. You do need to package it up / box it up and have a local post office to go to as they don't collect.

I have heard that parcel2go is also good but never actually used them.

I use either Collect +, which don't collect but seem cheap, or Transglobal Express which states how much many different companies cost, such as DHL.

I use parcel2go when shipping stuff to the states and they give a list of couriers and by far the cheapest and the service I have received thus far from them has been really good :D

I've sent bikes before using www.senditnow.com They use parcel force who collect it from you and its pretty cheap. Have sent 4 or 5 mountain bikes over the last couple of years and its never cost me more than £15.
